Pope Francis has sent half a million dollars in funds from the “Peter’s Pence collections” into 27 Mexico-based projects to assist migrant communities, the Vatican said on April 27. It comes as President Donald Trump warned days ago of a new migrant caravan attempting to get on U.S. soil.

The funds are to be sent to 16 Mexican dioceses and religious congregations who requested assistance in basic aid to the migrants stranded at the border. The Vatican noted that more than 75,000 migrants arrived in Mexico last year in six different migrant caravans. The migrants mainly come from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

“The Catholic Church hosts thousands of them in hotels within the dioceses or religious congregations, providing basic necessities, from housing to clothing,” the Vatican said.

The Vatican City has a wall around them. They have much bigger problems to worry about, like the priest sexual abuse problem.
